Perfectly Matched

 
Book Summary
 
Anna Olsen knows it's time to leave her sister's increasingly crowded house and start a life of her own. Following her sisters' examples, she becomes a mail-order bride, and after a short correspondence with clock maker and jeweler Edward Parker, she moves to Denver to become his wife. Almost immediately it's painfully apparent that Anna and Edward are very different. Anna is a free spirit who would rather be painting and enjoying the company of friends than cleaning house. Edward is a consummate perfectionist who, on their wedding day, hands Anna a list of chores that need to be done around the house daily.

Can this mismatched couple see past their differences to a harmonious future? Or will their disparate passions create obstacles neither is willing to surmount?

Maggie Brendan closes her Blue Willow Brides series with a heartwarming tale of true love despite misunderstanding, showing readers that God's timing is always perfect.


Review by Blanche Mancuso

A delightful story by Author Maggee Brenda

The story is based in Denver, CO, where Anna, a young mail order bride arrives at Union Station to meet her groom Edward. Edward has there wedding all planned, down to the last detail. The groom has no idea what is expected of him, and Anna hasn’t a clue what is expected of her. Anna is given a list, and he has made a list for himself.

Anna sees the Banker kicking a stray dog and befriends the dog, taking it home to nurse it back to health. Edward does not like dogs but relents to let her keep him. This starts a desire in Anna to help wounded and abandoned animals.

They become acquainted with different. Edward belongs to a library group that meets once a month. It is hilarious to read about one animal after another becomes sheltered in their barn. Anna is loved by all she meets. She is a devoted believer in prayer and decided this is her calling.

This is such a delightful book of two people who are so opposite learning real love for one another and those they are associated with finding God’s love for each and every one, along with the animals and all their antics. There is never a dull moment with this book. It was a truly enjoyable book and I would recommend it to all.
